Hi, there is not much resistance in the ram at the top of the door, open or close, was like it from new should there be ? Only enquiring as the rams that lift the seats up definitely have pressure in them when lifted or lowered. Anyone else has this issue  confused3

Thanks All.

AS door suppliers always seem to fit door stay ramps of zero resistance. Mine certainly is.

Door just slams shut when windy with no resistance at all from the ram, Husband has set up an aero elastic from outer handle to ns wheel to stop this , surely ram is faulty and warranty issue, motorhome is only 4 weeks old.  think_smiley_46

The stay is strong enough to swing the door fully open and keep it fully open, providing the wind doesn't gust causing it to slam shut.  In these conditions I tie a cord from the nearside cab door handle to the open habitation door's inner handle.  If this is a fault, it's a door design fault rather than a warranty fault.
